Kootenay Planning Drill Program for La Negra Silver Prospect

Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV:KTN) announced that it is in the midst of planning a 3,000-meter drill program at the La Negra silver prospect in Sonora, Mexico.

As quoted in the press release:

The Company reports recent processing of airborne geophysical data, compilation of all geochemical sample data and petrographic analysis have highlighted the importance of the La Negra discovery and are the impetus for advancing  the prospect to a drilling phase.  Silver mineralization has been identified across the entire exposure of the mineralized breccia along a general exposure of 100 by 500 meters. Average of all 50 rock samples (grabs and chips) taken is 77 gpt Ag. Nineteen of these were chip samples that averaged 107 gpt silver with a single high of 512 gpt Ag

James McDonald, president and CEO of Kootenay, commented:

The La Negra is the most advanced prospect of the five discoveries contained within the Promontorio Mineral Belt. We are very excited to drill test this prospect. Not only has La Negra returned consistent silver grades from sampling over a broad area, but it also has distinct characteristics to potentially evolve into a very large, low-cost, open-pittable scenario. This includes the Prospect’s outcropping nature and the extensive areas of silver mineralization indicated at surface. The La Negra will be the first of several anticipated satellite mineral systems to be drilled. In concert with this program, we will continue to prioritize the strategic expansion of the high-grade areas of our Promontorio resource, located in the Central corridor and the Northeast Zone.
